Rent Negotiable - Long Stay Discounts
SUMMER '22 RENT IN PROPERTY DETAILS
This is the first time that this wonderful, warm, and welcoming C18 Country House has been offered for rent over the entire Winter. Cap de Montaulieu is exceptionally available for short or long periods between 1 November 2021 and 31 March 2022. Rents are negotiable depending on the length of rental and the number of occupants.
The Pyrenees ski season usually starts in December and ends in April. Cap de Montaulieu is about two hours driving time to the main ski resorts, so it is easy to combine a holiday in Gascony with a few days or a weeks' skiing in the Pyrenees.
Cap de Montaulieu is spacious and very comfortable, with six large double bedrooms, all with bathrooms ensuite. It's a great winter house - light, well insulated, centrally heated and has a vast open fireplace. The very large living room (with piano!) means that everyone can comfortably meet all together. The large TV is in this room. The kitchen is conveniently located between the living room and the spacious dining room. There is a playroom with children's books and toys as well as a projector and large screen for DVDs. There is a cosy study and plenty of other places for reading and quiet games.
There's lots to do at Cap in winter: inside - jigsaws, board games, backgammon, chess, cards (a bridge table), painting and drawing materials; good Wi-Fi and several music systems; bookshelves full of books in every room; outside - Table Tennis in the large barn, Badminton, Boules, Croquet; there are two bicycles in the barn, and good walks all around; the countryside lends itself to photography and painting with very pure and clean air. Cap's panoramic views can be admired from inside and outside the house.
The local market town of Beaumont de Lomagne is a charming C13 'bastide' only 10 minutes' drive away. There is an excellent farmers' market every Saturday under the beautiful mediaeval covered hall in the main square. This is a meeting place for local people and an ideal opportunity for coffee or a glass of wine after doing your shopping. There are a couple of good restaurants, and the local bakery, butcher, pharmacy, newsagent, banks, and other shops are also all in the centre of town.
Beaumont de Lomagne is a renowned centre for garlic production with lots of related markets and other events. Another well-known feature of the town is its long-established horse-racing and trotting events - well worth going to! Horse riding, biking, walking, fishing, canoeing and other water sports are all available in or near Beaumont.
The local area of Lomagne has beautiful, rolling, wooded, unspoilt countryside with lots of very attractive mediaeval villages, such as Sarrant, Solomiac, Monfort, Maubec, Brignemont, and St Clar, many of them 'bastides', as well as the local market towns of Mauvezin, Fleurance, Lectoure and Moissac (with its beautiful Abbey and the finest mediaeval cloisters in Europe!). Auch, the capital of the departement of Le Gers, is a 45 minutes' drive and well worth visiting for its lovely architecture and good restaurants. The beautiful and fascinating city of Toulouse ('Paris of the South') is about an hour away, full of famous shops, boutiques, restaurants, museums and galleries.
The minimum rental period for Cap de Montaulieu in Winter is normally 2 weeks.
The Christmas/New Year holiday period will be from Saturday 18 December 2021 to Saturday 8 January 2022.
